The electronic translation service on the Toronto District School Board website is hosted by Google Translate, a third party service. The TDSB does not guarantee or warrant the reliability, accuracy or completeness of any translated information.
The quality of the translation will vary in some of the languages offered by Google. Google Translate is a free service and currently offers translation in over 100 languages, but does not capture all languages or dialects.
The basic translation goal is to capture the general intention of the original English material. Before you act on translated information, we encourage you to confirm any facts that are important to you or may affect any decisions you make.
The Toronto District School Board is committed to equity and community engagement, and by providing this tool, we are making our information more accessible to families whose first language is not English.
Hate and racism in any form has no place in schools and workplaces and we are committed to interrupting and confronting racism, discrimination and hate, in all of its forms when we see or hear it. We must continue to do everything in our ability to be more precise in our actions and strengthen our determination to eliminate all forms of hate and racism in our schools and our system.
The Student Learning Strategy for Combatting Hate and Racism is a proactive and student-centred approach to creating respectful and culturally safe learning environments for all students.
This plan is informed by our own TDSB data which shows us that prejudice and implicit bias are learned beginning at a young age. Most of the incidents of hate, bias and racism reported in the TDSB are carried out by students, and we must therefore focus greater attention on educating students to understand the current and historical roots of hatred, racism and intolerance.
This is urgent work and we must reflect on this reality and prioritize being proactive. Students and staff deserve to learn and work in an environment that is safe, inclusive and welcoming and we as a collective community must do everything in our ability to ensure that happens.
